Mets Morning News: Zack and Curtis Wheel the Mets to a Grand spring victory

Brad Barr-USA TODAY Sports

Your Wednesday morning dose of New York Mets and Major League Baseball news, notes, and links.

Meet the Mets

Curtis Granderson cracked two long home runs and Zack Wheeler tossed three shutout innings as the Mets beat the Astros 6-2 yesterday. Wheeler has taken a backseat to Noah Syndergaard this spring and he's just fine with that.

Tony Clark, former Met and current head of the Player's Union, says that the union is watching the Mets in regards to their payroll.

Noah Syndergaard passed a big test in his spring debut as he shut down the Braves. His opponents were thunderstruck by his electric stuff.

Sources say that Carlos Torres is a lock to make the Mets' bullpen out of spring training. Torres is out of options, so this makes plenty of sense.

Ike Davis, Ruben Tejada, and Lucas Duda all have lingering injuries that will keep them out of games a few more days.

Matt Harvey increased his workload, as he threw on back to back days for the first time since having his surgery.

Joel Sherman says that it's time for Sandy Alderson's Mets to get involved in a trade for a big player, suggesting they make a move on Jose Reyes should the Blue Jays make him available after this season.

Did you know the Mets set up an Instagram broadcast for Brooklyn hipster Mets fans? Well, they totally did! You can believe me. Believe me.

A number of Mets have followed David Wright's lead and copied his hair style.
